I believe if I could feel my emotions, and actually name and address them, deal with them, that I wouldn't be depressed anymore.

Unhappy Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

Emotions...the ongoing scourge of my life. Too many, too intense, too sensitive, blah blah blah. Like it's up to me to change how you feel about my emotions - I can't help it, it's the way I'm made. Love me or leave me...wait, don't leave me. Now I'm emotional again...see? The ongoing scourge of my life.

Hey everyone from Savannah Georgia. My name is Stef. I'm a 47 year old woman and am married to my husband of 7 years whom I found out 8 months ago on Nov 13, 2015 had an affair with my 25 year old daughter during her visit to see us from Mississippi with my 7 year old grandson. He's my heart. The emotional, physical affair lasted the summer of 2013 to summer 2014. During 2 visits (summer / Christmas ) and many many private phone calls. My heart is absolutely broken. I really would appreciate anyone who's willing to help with sound advice. I feel so alone. My whole world fell apart that day. I love them both. They say they both love me. My daughter who wasn't raised in an alcoholic environment has become an alcoholic and has been destructive in her decisions and hurt many people who love her. My husband ..that's a very long story. Please anyone. Can we talk?

Emotion is your evaluation about is it good or bad for me, to my advantage or not, is it a threat to my well being or an asset? You can improve your emotional state by questioning the things you tell yourself-is this true and accurate or am I thinking it's awful and I can't stand it when in fact it's only a common much smaller problem that everybody has to go through? AKA thinking rationally and not irrationality. RET therapy. David Burns and others. If you are looking for a total cure and 100 percent end of your discomfort forget it. That's not realistic. Once you have calmed yourself step back and see what might be done to improve things even more.

First off don't destroy yourself. I mean if you think it's all behind you and them then forgive and realize these thing happen in life. But if you feel your mate is likely to repeat this behaviour then get out. I've seen this sort of thing happen several times. We are humans with sex at the root of our being. Sometimes you meet someone and as the chemistry heats up over time you just do it. Then you are locked into a bond. And don't think it can't happen to you. Under the right circumstances it can. So project love into the situation and patience and understanding. He has to grow up and value his marriage. Maybe by now he has. An affair like you describe will always cause mental damage leading to alcoholism or depression and last for some time after the affair is over. It's on the subconscious level and can't be talked away. It's partly because of a great mental conflict that says 'I want to be with my new lover all the time but I can't because of my home life."

Then again divorce may be right because of the threat when your daughter visits. You will always see her but just at a place away from your ex. Then go on and enjoy life while realizing these thing happen and don't drag it around with you endlessly. Don't discuss it with friends.

I always thought I knew my emotions.. Recently I've found- IDK anymore, after a 7 yr relationship- that I thought was of the norm... I find I was mistaken!!

Default Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

I'm having a very hard time accepting the emotions I am feeling about my youngest child. I have come to the conclusion that he most likely is a sociopath and I have had to cut him out of my life for the time being. I don't know what to feel or how to feel about how I feel. I am so torn and confused about all of this. Everyone says I should seek therapy but I don't have the funds for my current out go of expenses much less adding more to it. Someone please help me.
